Independent Reading

Students are required to read inside and outside of class. Students should select books that truly interest and engage them. During independent reading students will build stamina, will increase their fluency and comprehension as well as practice skills we are learning in class.

Students will demonstrate their independent skills through a variety of activities including:

  • Book Talks
  • Book commercials/Review
  • Independent Reading Journal
  • Book Snaps

Students are expected to bring their independent reading books every day!
